Innovative Ways You Can Improve As An Artist While At Home

| March 23, 2021, 06:00 PM

For reasons we all know, we have been made to stay at home. This isn’t easy for anyone but a group of people who have had it worse are the artists. This forced solitude can do a number on the creative mind and cause them to suffer especially when it comes to their creativity and artistic skills.

Not to worry though, there are ways you can continue improving your quality as an artist. They include:

●    Take It Easy

One of the best ways you can improve as an artist while staying at home is to take it easy and calm down. This might sound very simple but it is a known fact that creativity thrives in an atmosphere that is peaceful and calm.

As an artist, you need to make a very conscious effort to protect your mental health by avoiding the things that trouble or upset you and participate in those things which bring you peace and eases your mind. This may not be very easy for you to do especially in this period coupled with the fact that you are stuck at home. However, if you are truly serious about improving your talent and becoming a better artist, you have to heed this and free your mind.

●    Learn Some More

Since you are already  talented in yor discipline and you already know so much about being a good artist, it is still very important for you to do all you can to broaden your artistry with lessons such as online courses (now that you are at home and unable to go anywhere). This is important because no one knows it all.

Even though you are very skilled and you have already paid your dues when it comes to studying and understanding the integral details of your passion, there are still things you do not know and these things can be what can set you apart. People in the same field and with a similar passion usually differ only majorly in the level of knowledge they have amassed in that field. The more knowledge you acquire as an artist, the more distinguished you become!

●    Keep Practicing

This is very basic but effective advice for budding (or experienced) artists. The miracle is in the practice. No matter how much theory you learn or lessons you take, you really won’t get better as an artist if you do not practice.

The reason for this is simply the fact that your artistry is indeed an art and art is better demonstrated than explained. You are doing a great job in learning the rudiments of your passion and talent. However, you would do a much better job when you start practicing. The benefit of learning so much and then practicing just as much like that in the place of practice you would be able to apply what you have learned and then successfully incorporate it into your artistic style thereby creating something that is purely yours and beautifully inimitable.

●    Join A Community Of Like-Minded Individuals

No man is an island. We are social creatures and we do better when we interact. In light of this, you should join a group or community of artists who are also walking down the same path as you and can relate to what you are going through.

As an artist, it is important that you find a safe space in the form of a community where you talk about your experiences as an artist, your goals, your fears, your struggles and even your work, all without the fear of rejection or derision. A place where you can be understood and you can have the assurance that the inner workings of your mind are valid. Somewhere where your work can be honestly assessed and advice can be given to make you better. A place where you can also look at the works of others and become inspired.

When you can find such a place, your artistic talents will blossom.

It is not easy being an artist, especially in such a period when one is forced to stay indoors.

However, with a littl eplanning and commitment, you can help you to retain and even improve your artistic ability while at home.
